Flagler County Veterans Services Office closed May 6-9


The Flagler County Veterans Services Office will be closed Monday through Thursday, May 6-9, to allow the team to attend annual training.


The training, which is conducted by the Florida Department of Veterans’ Affairs, is required for each team member’s re-certification as an accredited representative who is recognized by the U.S. of Veterans Affairs to assist veterans and their families with their interactions before the VA.


“Veterans who need assistance should try to make arrangements to meet with us this week, or the latter part of next week when our offices reopen on Friday, May 10,” said Veterans Services Officer David Lydon.


Representatives are trained to help veterans understand and apply for any VA benefits they may be entitled to including: compensation, education, vocational rehabilitation and employment, home loans, life insurance, pension, health care, and burial benefits.


Flagler County Veterans Services Office is a professional resource offered to all members of the armed forces of the United States – former, present, and future – including those with disabilities, whether service connected or not.


“We recognize that it is inconvenient to have the office closed for a couple of days, but this training is very important,” Lydon said. “It helps me and Eric Flores Febles continue to provide quality service to our veterans here in Flagler County.”
